About this title
Minor water stain to the dust jacket.From Library Journal:
Nitze is one of the last "founding fathers" of U.S. nuclear and Cold War diplomacy. His prolific career spanned events from World War II and the Marshall Plan recovery to President Reagan's Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty and the Star Wars debate. His memoirs are the recollections of a prudent and cautious public servant, who consistently sought to place national strength at the service of peace. This important historic account belongs with other works by foreign policy masters, including Dean Acheson's Present at the Creation: My Years in the State Department (Norton, 1987) and George F. Kennan's Sketches from a Life ( LJ 6/1/89). After 40 years as an adviser to Presidents and as a top negotiator, Nitze concludes that the prospects for peace and freedom have improved, and he welcomes the changed relation with the Soviets. This book belongs in any collection with holdings in contemporary history and strategic affairs.
